. this is half an hour. >> i have the honor to welcome to the united nations his excellency, barack obama, president of the united states of america. >> mr. president, mr. secretary general, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat, he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked -- tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking arabic, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the

more on his address before the united nations general assembly. top. >> a very nice day. yes, the clouds have arrived. here are the numbers, 76 and 53. nice, 77 and 59. record high 95. record low 39. six of the last ten nights downtown have been in the 50s. we'll come back and we have showers on radar. we'll talk about that and maybe a thunderstorm. >>> plus, the struggling senate campaign of missouri republican, todd aiken, not only is he not going away, it looks like he's picking up support. those stories and much more still ahead. >>> today is the deadline for todd aiken to withdraw from the race. members of his own party, including presidential candidate, mitt romney, are urging him to withdraw. it's the result of an interview where women can shut down the whole thing in order to avoid pregnancy. not everyone is distancing themselves from aiken, including newt gingrich. >> i don't see how any national republican and good conscious after tomorrow has any choice except to say, the choice is the republican nominee where senator mccaskill, i am for the republican nominee. >>
with the prime minister of israel when the prime minister is here for the united nations session i think is a mistake, and it sends a message throughout the middle east that somehow we distanced ourselves from our friends. i think the exact opposite approach is what's necessary. >> what do you make of the republican view that the president has no time for prime minister netanyahu but time for "the view"? >> prime minister netanyahu is not in new york in the days the president is in new york. the president's not in new york on the days whe prime minister netanyahu will be in new york. the president just recently had a conversation with prime minister netanyahu that lasted more than an hour, i believe, and that was just one in countless conversations that they've had. >> you say that he's got schedules, that foreign leaders have schedules, but the president has blocked out time to appear on "the view" on tuesday. so he has time for whoopi goldberg but he doesn't have time for world leaders? >> no, chris, look, the president is going to be actively involved at the u.n. general assembly. >>
'll get the killers. today the president spent 24 minutes of his half-hour speech to the united nations talking about libya, the middle east and ambassador chris stevens. the speech, which was seen by american voters and viewers around the world, mentioned stevens 12 times. as the president paid tribute to him right from the start. >> chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. >> that's the first we learned about exactly what stevens was doing in benghazi, a city the u.s. had been warned was not safe. and the president continued in his speech vowing to find the killers. >> the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we received from the libyan government, and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice.
in the world as the president laid out today in front of the united nations, rooted in american values, but that will not louis lambist jihadist terrorists to push us out of the region. >> so when you say you're confident in what is happening on the ground, let me put the question directly to you, then. why is that when cnn was in the consulate days after the horrible attack, they found that the -- the diary of ambassador stevens' thoughts and his fears. and not the u.s. investigators. why weren't they the ones who found something like that, which was -- was just lying there? >> that's an excellent question. we did not get briefed on the specifics of cnn's acquisition and use of the private diary of ambassador stevens. that wasn't one of the topics on which we were briefed. that does raise a real question about the appropriateness of the use of material from a private diary. but it does, as you put it, raise a question. if it was just actually lying out in the open, was there, in fact, appropriate efforts to secure the consulate? one of the larger points i hope watchers take into mind,
is off today. our starting point, tough talk on iran from president obama at the united nations, as iran's leader mahmoud ahmadinejad prepares to take the podium today. he's given fiery speeches before. he will inflame an already heightened tension in the middle east? >>> the battleground votes. new polls show president obama ahead in ohio, florida, and pennsylvania. and in some cases, by double digits. can mitt romney win the presidency without the power of these swing states? >> no. and by the way, check out this incredible video. a tornado touches down, ripping through homes and buildings. it is all caught on camera. >> wow. a busy morning ahead. our guests include michele flournoy, co-chair of the obama campaign nation security advisory committee. tiki barber, former player for the new york giants, rudy giuliani, former new york city mayor, ben cohen, co-founder of ben & jerry's ice cream and singer cyndi lauper. >> it is wednesday, september 26th.

. jonathan hunt is at the united nations again today. jonathan, any chance of concrete action from the u.n. on this? >>jonathan: very little from the u.n. itself. on the sidelines of this week's united nations general assembly, there is a meeting going on right now here in new york city of the so-called "friends of syria" group. secretary of state, hillary clinton is at the meeting and she has announced today there will be an extra $45 million sent by the united states to aid the rebels, the so-called nonlethal aid including helping them organize and buying them communications equipment. as for the u.n. itself, this is pressure little action despite the words we have heard continually from almost every speaker in the john assembly podium this week. >> the regime of bashar al-assad must come to an end so the suffering of the syrian people can stop. >> this is a calamity. >> the future for syria is a future without assad. >>jonathan: that future can only be achieved with action from the u.n. that takes security council action as long as russia and china continue to resist that, and it will
